You should get Fell and Musdard to read it, though it might end up being a comedy then.
Screw it, I'm buying crayons and paper. I can imagineer my own adventures! Wheeee!

Ha.

Though, Fuzzy, that reminds me.  Do you have the physical copy of MISTBORN?

Me. Probably the best way to pass it on would be at the TLE party since you've deserted Provo for the slightly more north. Have you seen the new issue yet? It's purty.
By the way, congrats on the promotion and salary!

Actually, Fuzzy lives a bit more south in Provo, now.

That was the plan.  This house is only two blocks south of where we were before, so it's as good as standing still, and we have twice as much space.

So, I like it, but after seeing EUOL's cover, this seems a little, well, blah.

They say the status of the author is reflected in how big the author's name is in relation to the title. You're big, HoM!

I have to step in and mock the graphic design, simply because that's what I do for a living, but on the whole I like it. I enjoy the fact that, even though it bears no relation to this story, they're keeping up the theme of men in suits in the desert with their faces hidden.

see, if they had kept the title "Awake," that would have been given the hugeness, and your name would have been much smaller. So I guess it's a good thing?
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

The problem is that this is a cross-genre kind of book: half comedy and half action/adventure terrorism kind of thing.

That cover just screams "terrorism"
